back in black

or not so in the black. more red than black.

i had a fantastic time on our impromptu soiree. i was carded a couple of times, gambled in almost every conceivable fashion, stayed up all night and drank bloody marys for hours. i laughed so hard i cried and then cried from the laughing. and then i said goodbye to a few people i've loved for years, cheering them as they walked off out of the flashing lights and into the sun.

but now that i am back i am freakishly busy. i don't have time to visit quite yet but i am mindful as my reader plumps up and i wonder how you all are.

hmm...i think my "have a good time" comment, written an hour ago, was too little, too late, LOL!

I have't been carded in years. I always want to ask the bouncer, what is it, the crinkles around the eyes, the outfit, the wedding ring, why don't you mistake me for 18 anymore?
Congrats on looking like a college senior. I clearly need to revise my wardrobe.

welcome home!

Janet said...

I might get carded, if the bouncer was extremely farsighted. And drunk. ;)

welcome back, friend.

Hetha said...

Glad you made it back in one piece. Around these parts we don't get carded cuz everyone knows us. Kinda sad.

Sounds like heaven, I think.

Vegas, for all its excess, is a wonderful escape from reality, since so little of it is real. I love it, and a couple days is enough to shake off reality and break free before going back to regular life. I'm glad you got to go.
